to accept the right of a sovereign state, a member of the united nations as a viable state, a state which is legitimate, is unacceptable from any point of view. from any aspect and angle whatsoever. we cannot accept the iranians will be allowed to legitimize another state whatever it is. and certainly not from our point of view not israel. they will have swallow two bitter pills not one. one pill will be the pill of the threat nuclear threat and the other will be the threat of accepting israel right to exist. despite the rhetoric we are hearing from teheran, i believe that many iranians in places of power understand that israel is here to stay. they realize that israel not going disappear as it will not disappear. and therefore, they will have to come terms with this reality. and these two elements means to say in order to achieve the aim, you have to find ways of giving them what did i say a few minutes ago? to resort to the use of dignity. it's a different good thing to do. it's very difficult. i'm not saying it's going to be easy. i think it's something we have to do. because we have t

on earth is he not in custody? >> that's the responsibility of the libyan authorities. the united states does not have any capacity to arrest people or act as a police force. the libyan force is sovereign. the problem is libya after gadhafi does not have a strong national police force or army. it's replete with militias. that's the environment in which our diplomats have to work and protect themselves in tripoli as well other places. >> mr. ambassador, are you telling me these new libyans in control are akin to keystone cops or are you telling me these libyans don't give a damn what we want? >> i didn't say either of those things. the libyan authorities are quite friendly with the united states. they had free and fair elections last summer, a moderate group of people were elected. the problem is in libya, as well as egypt and tunisia, these moderate governments are being assaulted by much more radical forces, some of them armed. i do think you ought to focus your attention now on the libyan authorities and what they need to do to bring these killers to justice. >> i don't understand this

that the main suspect in last year's iranian plot to assassinate the saudi ambassador to the united states pled guilty in a u.s. court yesterday. what does this maybe say about what the iranian government is willing to do? >> well, it did not need this particular case in order to prove once again that the iranians have been involved in terrorist activities against persons, against states, against countries for a long period of time. iran uses terrorism as a major tool of its international relations. it is as simple as all that. iran has plotted against others as well, individuals as well, and has also been shipping arms and equipment into areas inside the middle east. syria is one case now in point. there is an iranian force -- iranian forces are battling on syrian soil against syrians. there are iranians that have been in lebanon for quite some time and who have been handling equipment in lebanon, which has been of a great danger to israel. iran has used the state of sudan as an area through which they could send equipment through sudan to egypt to send that into the gaza strip. as i said, the

"outfront" tonight, a shocking new poll. women in the swing states in this country rank abortion as their number one issue in this election. gallup asked female voters an open-ended question. literally this, name the most important issue in 2012, and tops the list was abortion with 39% of the women responding. 19% said jobs and then you can see health care, economy and equal rights. during the biggest economic crisis of this generation, in fact of the past few generations, the biggest issue to 39% is abortion. so far this year we've seen almost every poll rate the economy and jobs as the top concern for all voters. we said let's look at recent polls and what they said. we found this. pew gave women a list of issues and said which are very important to your vote. 54% was abortion. granted, that's not as high as the 89% that said the economy or t

there is a tremendous amount of capital flowing into the united states. and $90 billion may seem like little to you, and i am impressed it seems like little, but i have tried to cut it out of the social welfare spending. >> i agree with you. >> if you start to constrict investment into the united states. >> we are not going to. >> well you certainly will. >> we had it during the 40s, i have the ifs, early 70s -- >> but we are in a competitive world. >> we had huge amounts of capital. >> i am an investor and i have a portfolio. if capital gains goes to 25, 30%, i am no not going to invest. i will buy municipal bonds. >> no, you would earn municipal bonds at 2 or 3%. capital gains even if you are in the index funds you are likely to get 7, 8, 9%. you give away a third in tax and you are doubling it. >> the numbers are meaningful though. take a step back. if you were to actually tax a dollar made in the stock market or a dollar made with your real estate the same way a dollar made in a factory, the government would raise $250 billion a year over the course of 10 years. that's $2.5 trillion. that's thr
capital was allocated. the united states thought it out years ago to the extent we had anything and gradually developed the leverage ratio. and with much fighting, tleverae ratio was kept in the united states with bassle one and two at a quite low level. the feeling in the united states, i think i can say, is yes, you ought to have a leverage ratio and it ought to be higher than what they're talking about in bassle, significantly higher than what they're talking about in bassle. but i don't know whether that will ever be agreed in bassle but yes, i think that may be more important than the risk-based standard. i mean this is the way you get at the fact that some important risks are not covered at all by bassle. now the difficulty with it is, is we used to have it that way. they said okay, we got one capital standard for the whole bank we're not going to buy -- in american terms we're not going to buy government securities anymore because we just want to hold things that are more profitable. we don't want to allocate 5% capital against government securities. and whatever you're d

for the election of united states senators by united states legislature. we got rid of that in 1913 with the 17th amendment. it worked pretty well. most citizens today would find it bizarre not to be able to directly elect their senators. it is even more important to do that in terms of electing a president. i think we got it in reverse. at the 17th amendment was correct. what we should have started as to whether direct election of the president. represent all of america. host: falls church, virginia. on our line for republicans. caller: i happen to agree with the senator. i think the electoral college gives protection to the modern state. i hear your point, too. and there's a concern there. one. have always had, and i never hear anyone talk about this. has there ever any been studies or thoughts about -- i do not know about doing it by county, if you have a state like florida were different counties but different ways, at least your vote doesn't get completely thrown out. and maybe there is more fairer presentation that way. he could speak to that i would appreciate that. host: she was talking a

place, in many ways in which the united states can't be expected, no u.s. president could be expected to solve and resolve everything. the blood shed in syria makes all of us shudder. that doesn't mean there is a u.s. policy option that will bring it to an end or even reduce it and most of the options i see in terms of trying to do more would exacerbate it. the full only other thing i can say as your question implies it is not just the u.s. but the other players in the region and with regard to the iranian issue as it -- as jocelyne said the same thing applied to syria. we should continue to work closely with our syrian allies, with the jordanians, jordan and iraq and syria, jordan iraq and turkey all have 100,000 refugees each in their countries at least. we can't do it all ourselves and our wish i could give you an ideal scenario but this isn't one. >> can i ask you? you were talking about it. how did the saudis and others view the possibility of militant extremists coming to the fore in syria. having to fight militant extremists at home and do a good job of it, but what if the mone
the president of the united states needs to offer solutions to the problem of americans being murdered abroad instead of saying broadly he will clean up the mess. >>> on the comedy show there are screw ups then you fix them. he didn't talk about responsibility. the responsibility is his. >> a libyan is one of a handful of men now suspected of commanding the deadly raid on benghazi. we don't know if he is a ringleader but we are told he is on the short list. >>> peter doocy live in washington, thank you. >>> when exactly the president and his administration knew about the attack. al potential bombshell on his show last night. >> new information may come today to prove the state department knew within two hours this was a terror attack. >> there are still unanswered questions including why did the u.n. ambassador and tell the american people something that turns out not to be true. who told her to say that? i know what press is like for a sunday show. someone specifically said to say that and turns out at the knew it wasn't true. if they put all of them in different rooms interrogated all of th

for you to hear the president of the united states call your dad a liar? how do you react to that? >> well, jump out of your seat, you want to race down the debate stage and take a swing at him. you know you can't do that, first, because there's a lot of secret service between you and him, but also because this is the nature of the process. >> nature of the process to feel that way. tagg raum mid-omneromney's brot laughed off the remark when asked about it on "the view." >> do you want to slug president obama like your brother said he did? >> that brother has slugged me a couple times. i'm sure president obama has nothing to worry about. i think that's something he was saying off the cuff. i'm sure he didn't mean it. >> the romney campaign made light of tagg romney's comment. andrea saul told "the new york times" he was joking about how frustrating this process can be for the family. oh, they're inconvenience on the campaign trail, aren't they? we've heard nothing from tagg romney. he has no apologieies just like his dad. tagg romney is a not a misbehaving kid speaking out of turn but the
. >> mitt romney openly disrespectful to the president of the united states and the moderator, candy crowley, during the debate. he made his own rules, answered questions when he wanted to. not the ones that he was asked. and mitt romney has shown this type of elitist behavior his entire life. just go ask the people in freeport, illinois. those people didn't get a chance to rush the stage and take a swing at somebody who took their job. they just got fired. they got outsourced. if mitt romney becomes president, we shouldn't expect anything different. he's going to play by his own rules and he isn't going to give a damn about any american out there or what they think. that's how he is. just think about that. let's reverse the roles just a little bit. let's just play with this. let's just say that president obama has a son and president obama's son barack jr. goes on talk radio, maybe with some liberal out there and says, you know, i'd really like to take a swing at my dad's opponent, but i know i can't do it because the secret service is there. tell me, you think bill o'reilly would do anythi
